Help setting up my devices in fstab
Ok I have Slackware 10 installed and I am in the process of getting it up and running. One of my problems is I have to get my CD-RW and my DVD drive all set up in fstab. Right now my DVD drive is being set up as my /dev/cdrom drive and my CD-RW doesn't seem to appear anywhere. I have a question though... is my CD-RW drive /dev/hdd or is it /dev/hdc? Is my DVD drive /dev/dvd or /dev/cdrom...
Could someone please explain to me how Linux handles the devices in the /dev folder so I can set them up right?

your /dev/cdrom probly should be your CD-RW... as for you fstab, can you please post its content here...
as for Automatic cd, dvd mounting, its no use to have them auto mounted in fstab,... you can have them but the noauto should be specified... the reason is that you wont always have a "valid" media in the drive and mounting will only fail on these occasions..
